    Bought biddies awhile back and was told they were black shouldered blue orphingtons, but the comb is throwing me. IMG_20170527_202425344.jpg IMG_20170527_202425344.jpg IMG_20170420_192751232.jpg

    looks like a black shouldered blue orpington to me too, maybe the mix in this one gave it a different comb? :D

    I have no clue what a black shoulder blue Orpington is. A blue Orpington rooster will have darker feathers around the neck and shoulders, but is still a blue. Yours looks like a mix of some sort, probably with a Wyandotte, and is a rooster.
